From EOS, Science News by AGU The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring (but Later) Mismatch between the pace of climate change and crop phenology may signal a new challenge for climate change adaptation. by David S. Schimel, 31 December 2021 Changes to phenology, the timing of biological events, are among the sharpest diagnostics of climate change. Indeed, one of the longest records of plant phenology has been kept by the Spanish Meteorological Agency (AEMET) [...]

From CyVerse https://cyverse.org/foundational-friendships-lead-to-open-ecological-science Foundational Friendships Lead to Open Ecological Science A group of researchers met in a CyVerse open science class and created a novel tool for ecologists to analyze microbial datasets. By Shelley Littin, CyVerse Software developers craft the tools of modern science, and CyVerse provides the collaboration space where they can get creative, connect with end users, and publish their products. One such collaboration led to an open source software tool for ecologists everywhere, [...]

From UC Santa Cruz News New study shows plants struggle to keep pace with climate change in human-dominated landscapes December 06, 2021 By Allison Arteaga Soergel Researchers found that changes in plant phenology are lagging behind rising temperatures across a majority of the Northern Hemisphere, particularly in the most human-dominated landscapes, like crop lands. Researchers at UC Santa Cruz are contributing new insights into the challenges plants face in adapting to climate change. Prior research [...]
